Condition neuroblastoma
Treatment 3f8 monoclonal antibody and 13-cis-retinoic acid
Phase phase 2
Sponsor Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
Start date August 2010
End date August 2017
Trial size 43 participants
Trial identifier NCT01183416, 09-158


The purpose of this study is to see if high-dose 3F8 combined with GM-CSF is better than standard dose 3F8 in treating neuroblastoma. Another purpose of the study is to find out what effects, good and/or bad, 3F8 has on cancer. The investigators also want to see if the antibody works against a very small amount of neuroblastoma (minimal residual disease) that is left in the bone marrow.

Study Design

Endpoint classification safety/efficacy study
Intervention model single group assignment
Masking open label
Primary purpose treatment
This phase II, open-label, single arm trial assesses the anti-NB activity of high-dose 3F8 (80 mg/m2/day), which is used in cycles 1-2, with return to standard 3F8 dosage (20 mg/m2/day) in subsequent cycles. The patients are post-transplant and in 1st complete/very good partial remission (CR/VGPR),89 with no evidence of NB by standard studies, but are at high risk for relapse.
3f8 monoclonal antibody and 13-cis-retinoic acid
A cycle consists of treatment with 3F8 for 5 days. GMCSF is started 5 days in advance of each 3F8 cycle. The break between end of a cycle of 3F8/GM-CSF and start of next cycle is 2-to-4-weeks through 4 cycles; subsequent breaks are ~6-8 weeks. 13-cis-retinoic acid is started after cycle 2.

Primary Outcomes

Assess the impact of high-dose 3F8/GM-CSF on relapse-free survival
time frame: 2 years

Secondary Outcomes

Apply real-time quantitative RT-PCR to test the hypothesis that the minimal residual disease content of bone marrow
time frame: 2 years
Monitor safety of the high-dose antibody treatment
time frame: 2 years
